    The Golden Age of 50

    The Golden Age of 50

    It was December 2019, I was still unemployed, I was tired of receiving rejection letters or emails from employers, I crashed my car into a parking light pole and I was trying to keep my head above the water financially - my life was not exactly where I wanted it to be. I wanted 2019 to be over, I was tired of the negative things that were happening to me. I was looking for forward to the year of 2020 because I knew that was the year I was going to be turning 50. I spent New Year's Eve with a few friends, while everyone in the bar was celebrating the New Year, kissing their loved ones, or toasting champagne. I sat there and I contemplated on how I was looking forward to the next six months because that was when I would be turning 50.

    Peace and Love

    Peace and Love

    Peace, mercy and love are possibilities in a world that is becoming full of famine disease and unrest. When you wake up everyday and look at the beautiful sky and the abundance of greenery and flowers and have gratitude in your heart that you are still living. Each day is a new chance to be happy and in peace with the world. Take care of your loved ones and be kind and caring towards them. Live in the moment, and you will be happy and peaceful. Give every human their right, don't hurt others and you will be happy, content and peaceful. Another way to be happy and peaceful is to be merciful to the creatures in the world. When you help somebody you will find inner peace and happiness in your heart. Every day ask yourself what is love and how do I nourish and water the love in my life. Think of love as flower that needs constant watering in order to be present in your life. And when the love dies as all beautiful flowers die eventually think deeply how do I replant and rekindle this love that has died in my life. The way to re kindle the love is to plant seeds of peace care and mercy around yourself and around the people around you. Give gifts to your family members, eat together as a family, watch tv together, do fun outings together, laugh together. A family that eats together stays together. A time tested way to be happy and peaceful is by bringing peace and happiness not only to yourself and your family members but also to the poor and needy people in the world. Feed the poor, shelter the homeless, and speak kindly to all those you meet. Another way to be peaceful and happy is to have a clean heart and clean environment. Cleanse your heart from hate, anger and all forms of malice and this will plant seeds of peace and love in your life. Also keep a house and living environment that is physically clean from impurities and dirt. When you have a clean environment you will feel a sense of inner peace that will radiate a light for you to be peaceful. Being peaceful and content does not usually mean having lots of money and belongings, it could just mean being peaceful from within and content with what you already have. People think that if I accumulate wealth and children I will happy and peaceful. That is not always the case being happy means having gratitude with the things or people in your life even if it is little. Being happy and content with the wealth you have and the children you have and not always wanting more. Adorned for the people is the love of desires, such as women, and children, and piles upon piles of gold and silver, and branded horses, and livestock, and fields. These are the conveniences of the worldly life. No I am not denying the fact that the mentioned above things make mankind happy but its a temporary happiness, but if you show gratitude for these things they can and will contribute to a peaceful feeling of happiness.

    Writer's Inspiration

    Imagine walking down a lengthy, hollow dark forest alone and then along the way, you see a two-way path. Now at this two-way path, you’re faced with two challenging options, the first option is to follow your heart and do what you love whatever that may be. The second option is you fitting into how society views you and sticking to the status quo of the comfort-ability that life hands you. If you choose Option 1, you would most likely be faced with judgment and scrutiny from your peers who will try to talk you out of making your goals and dreams and goals come true but the end result will grant you with inner peace and you will be much happier about the person you have become. If you choose Option 2, You will live like the average human on this earth who allowed their adversity to beat them at their own game just to be comfortable with limitations on their life just because they wanted to feel socially accepted in today’s world. The end result will leave you constantly feeling as if there’s a missing puzzle piece in your life that makes you whole as a person, so you go along with life always wondering what could have been if you followed your heart. So whatever path you decide, just know there will be challenges along the way both good and bad, the question is which one would you choose?

    A Call for Unity : Guided Meditation

    I’m not here to tell anyone how they should feel or should react to what’s going on. As a spiritual teacher I often feel the weight of collective grief so strongly. And when I'm not sure how to help - it's disheartening.

    A Slow and Steady Race to the End

    A Slow and Steady Race to the End

    The end seems like it is already upon us and we just don’t know it yet, with all the events of the year that have happened its no wonder the world is shutting down, a culmination of all the events throughout history shows us that this was going to happen sooner or later. Natural compounded with man-made disasters helped to bring this end on faster than it would have if we had not driven the planet into a spiral of self-destruction. Mixing that with the constant violence of those in a position of power who feel it is their right to act any way they want and shout self-defense or use the excuse of thinking someone was a threat. This constant flow of horror has now reared its ugly head again in all the looting and escalated violence from not just police but citizens alike which only serves to further move the needle into the empty spot. This race to the end of the road is a slow one but a steady one none the less and we as a people will not live long enough to see the climb back from the brink if we continue on this path of destruction and death.

    Outcasts United - Refugees

    Outcasts United was a powerful book with many strong themes. Coach Luma’s refugee team, “The Fugees,” endure countless struggles, from getting kicked off soccer fields, practicing in parking lots, using Luma’s car headlights to study, wearing rejected uniforms, to dealing with opposing racist coaches and slurs throughout games. Luma would always tell them to just ignore these things and smile. Through all this, the boys never complained and held their heads up high.

    The Winning Mindset

    The Winning Mindset

    The challenges of life will never stop. They only get harder and harder as you get closer and closer to what you want. We are constantly being tested. Life can throw us off course from time to time, and it seems like we are in a constant battle with ourselves; because that is the truth. As soon as I feel like I am on top of the world, something happens and I get setback. I get back up again and setback again. It felt like a never-ending pattern. But I had something in me that kept me moving forward, I believed all these setbacks were to make the comeback that much better!

However, a lot of what I do can become overwhelming and exhausting quickly. Sometimes just witnessing what is happening can be enough.

    I don't believe in hope

    I don't believe in hope

    I am alive today. Some people say it is ‘luck’. Some people say it is because of my ‘positive thinking’. Some people say it is a ‘miracle’ (mainly my doctors say this!). Some people say it is because I am ‘strong’. And others say it is because I never give up ‘hope’.

    Why you should start a YouTube channel!

    Why you should start a YouTube channel!

    Lock down and being furloughed from my work has gotten me a bit bored to say the least. I am enjoying being off work and can have a lie in to watch endless amounts of movies. However, I feel as though I have watched and rewatched every movie and show Netflix and Amazon Prime has to offer me. I even got the Disney plus free week trial to have a nice week of animations and fairy tales, which I did thoroughly enjoy. It has now been nearly two months of constant TV shows and movies that I now feel as though I have no concentration left to really enjoy my favourite shows. To combat my lock down boredom and bring back my concentration, I have even taken up answering paid online surveys online.

    A Creative Outlet to Deal with Lockdown

    A Creative Outlet to Deal with Lockdown

    One thing that has helped me with this lockdown as tick-tock I tried the Post helpful videos about people with disabilities and maybe some General Life hacks along the way. I feel better because I am putting it out positive energy, as well as giving myself a project. I do have a YouTube channel called Yvonne Knight. However, those videos are a little more involved because of the editing process. Tick tock already has special effects and editing features built into the app. The features are pretty straightforward, even if you have no editing experience once so ever. I feel like making videos is its more comfortable way to express myself. Sometimes making videos is more relaxed than writing an article. YouTube, in particular, I can decide how long the video is going to be and how extensive the video edited Will be. When you write an article, you are writing to fit somebody else’s criteria. I like that YouTube and tick-tock give me more creative control over my work. I think in these times of separation, we need to find a creative outlet to express ourselves outward. We need to feel we are connecting to one another in some way, even though some of us cannot be with the one we physically want to be near.. If you are going to put forth a video on either platform, please consider doing a positive video, because there is too much negativity in the world right now. Please remember it takes a lot of courage to turn on the camera and pour out your creativity to the world. Some people Will is not tick-tock beautiful, but then again, the persons that are calling them ugly do not look much better than they do.

    While there is no question that we are living in truly stressful times at this very moment, we also need to be aware of our blessings as well. For example, when it comes to the Coronavirus, everyone would agree that it is very dangerous and it has made a severely negative mark on our society. However, there are many things that this virus cannot do as well. For example, one thing that COVID-19 simply cannot do is stifle our creativity. One hall school senior in Olathe, Kansas exemplifies that very fact.

    To be Young and Successful

    To be Young and Successful

    Success can be defined in many ways. It could mean that you are an individual with a steady income who has purchased your very own house when you were in your 20s or 30s, but being successful is more than that. Success should include security which assures you that you will survive if ever you lose your job. A steady income will not cover that. It will only cover your daily expenses which means future plans will be too far ahead such as travelling.
